Especially now in the winter you can experience the charm of the Icelandic horse in the countryside. We offer day, half-day or combo tours that follow in the footsteps of the Vikings along the trails around Eldhestar’s farm. When the snow slowly covers the tops of the mountains around the farm, the puddles start to freeze and the sun rises like a fireball from the ground, we know winter is here. The view between the fluffy ears of our reliable horses is simply stunning that time of the year. Even in high snow and darkness our horses take great care of our guests with their friendly characters and safe steps.

If you want to enjoy this feeling for longer than a few hours, go for a northern lights hunt, some sightseeing or riding lessons, you can stay with us for a few more days.

Included in your multi-day tours are accommodations, incredible food and the experience of a lifetime.
